I had asked Rachel to go with me to the Business Boutique months beforehand and it somehow slipped up on us. When she text me two weeks before and asked if we were still going I said “Yes!” That led to a last minute scramble fore tickets and an AirB&B search.
We almost missed our flight out from Reagan due to chatting too much over coffee. We suddenly realized no one was around us and the flight attendant said the doors were closing. As we slipped into our seats Rachel whispered; “Let’s not tell our husbands about this.” 😉
The Boutique was centered around teaching woman to grow the businesses they love. Running a business takes dreaming, working hard and lots of grit. I loved the verse Christy shared:
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Proverbs 29:18
It had been years since I stayed up till 3 AM, and then attended a conference, AND had a late flight after that. But it was completely worth it to sit in a room full of thousands of woman with goals and dreams for their businesses; realizing we were all in this together.
